Job sector: executive
Job description:
Our mission is to save wildlife through conservation action and engaging people with the natural world. We achieve this mission through operating two zoos; Bristol Zoo Gardens and the Wild Place Project, and through our formal and informal education, conservation and science programmes.

Established in 1836, Bristol Zoo Gardens is the fifth oldest zoo in the world. The Wild Place Project was launched in 2013 on a large, rural site in South Gloucestershire and has enjoyed rapid expansion since its inception.

As the largest visitor attraction in the South West, our zoos have welcomed over 90 million guests and through our national and international field conservation programmes, we have helped save a significant number of species from extinction. We offer popular undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in collaboration with local universities and our award-winning education team has taught generations of school children the value of nature, wildlife and the impact our society has on the world.

We are now seeking a new Chief Executive to lead the Society through its next phase of development. In partnership with the newly appointed Chief Zoological Officer, you will ensure that our mission is delivered via an amazing visitor experience and through high quality conservation, research and education.

Our new Chief Executive will have senior leadership experience gained in the leisure or visitor attraction sectors, ideally in organisations with multiple service lines. With strong commercial acumen, you will be able to articulate a clear vision and strategy to ensure increasing visitor numbers and financial sustainability for the Society. If you have the vision and passion to lead a values-based and committed team at this exciting point in our history, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

For an informal confidential discussion, please contact our advising consultants, Katy Giddens, Juliet Taylor (020 7426 3973) or Helen Anderson (0207 426 3977). The closing date for applications is Monday 11th December 2017.
